Ascent Trip Report

Great sunny day for a hike. Trail along Thirteenth Lake was very nice, with many birch trees and wildflowers. Trail turned to follow the Peaked Pond outlet and we passed many small cascades. Many mushrooms/fungi along this route. Passed a few marshes with views of Peaked Mtn. Arrived at Peaked Pond, a nice secluded spot. Steep final ascent from the pond to the peak. Spectacular views from summit ledges. Could see Peaked Pond directly below, south to Gore Mtn and north to Snowy Mtn.
